Perfect location. Room was clean. Microwave and fridge in the room. Balcony overlooking the boardwalk. Rates were reasonable. Pool was spotless. Couldn't ask for more.

The staff are very rude and don't speak..... The housekeeper was mad because i asked her to clean my room... The talked about me and my family as if i wasn't even there....The people in the office just look at you walking past all day..... The water comes out yellow.... The beds are very hard.... I had old food in my refrigerator from the last guest... I was there from Friday til Tuesday and they told me i couldn't get my sheets change until Wednesday remind you i was there for 3 days before i asked for them to be changed.... All the staff looks at you as if you have three heads.... All i have to say is keep your money....

This place is gross. It smells and its outdated. The staff do not care about keeping their guests happy at all. I woke to ants crawling on my face at midnight. After further inspection, there were a bunch of them crawling on a bedside table and bed that I was on. Thank God I didn't notice any on the bed with my children. After complaining, I was told we could switch rooms but the room they were going to put us in was next to a large family reunion that were loud. My children sleeping already and sucked it up with the ants. I barely slept that night. The staff never even apologized. The attitude they had was "there only ants". I'm sorry but ants waking me up during the night crawling on my face is not normal to me. I've stayed at a lot of hotels in Wildwood and this one is on my NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WILL I STAY HERE AGAIN list. All this place is, is a dump with rude staff. There are way nicer, cleaner, well kept hotels in WIldwood for the same price.

I have stayed at the King's Inn a few times over the years. The last and I mean the last time we stayed there was the worst. You could not walk on the carpet in your bare feet, if you did you would get a black sticky goo on them. Everything in the room was dusty. The bathroom had mold in the shower, the dresser drawers needed vacuumed. Along the stairs to the second floor looked like garbage can row. There was an odor of dirty diapers around the garbage cans everyday. To get to the second and third floors you have to walk past them. The air conditioner was putting out warm air and it took several complaints over 2 days to get it replaced. The King's Inn used to be a nice clean place but not anymore. It is in a great location but it has been let go.

My 10th year going to this motel was disappointing no real improvements were made.

The front office needs a upgrade badly paint new couch loveseat rug computers.
The pool is nice but small. The steps need to be fixed so older people who have to carry their own bags do trip. The railings outside the room are a danger to children. They had kids running around and one of them could have fell. The room had the same bedspread from 10 years ago thousands of people have slept on them and those white sheets that need to be replaced the bathroom was outdated and the water was not always hot. The towels were old and raggy. I stay here every year because it is the best spot on the beach it just needs alot of work it looks old next to the condos across the street which may put them out of business if they do get it together and do something to save this gem. It is not a motel for someone who is handcapped. The bathrooms by the pool nasty and the laudryroom outdate. It's off season time to upgrade before summertime . i would stay again if upgrades were made.

we have stay at the king's inn motel and a very bad accident has arrived. My 2 years old child past trough the railling and fall from the second floor. King inn motel didnt' recognize that the railling was dangerous...so never go there with a youg child, they didnt' change the railling and the space beetween them is too big so a child can past trough!!!!! I almost lost my baby...king inn motel are very not conscious and dont care about security

For about the umteenth year in a row we vacationed in Wildwood, NJ. and stayed in the Kings Inn. Kay and her staff are very attentitive to all of your needs. Yes, it is an older motel, but it's clean, right on the boardwalk, has a heated pool, and is near everything you could ask for!
I have stayed at other motels years ago, but once we stayed at Kings Inn there was no reason to try anywhere else.
